    What is Scheriproct ointment

    The two active ingredients of Scheriproct Ointment are cinchocaine hydrochloride and prednisolone hexanoate. Cinchocaine is a local anaesthetic, and it works by hampering the pain messages pathway located in the nerve fibres. This medicine relieves pain and itching. Prednisolone, on the other hand, is a corticosteroid and responsible for alleviating inflammation. Scheriproct Ointment is a suitable product for treating internal and external piles.

    There are many known ways to treat piles or haemorrhoids. Some sources say that witch hazel, as an anti-inflammatory can reduce pain and itching. Aloe vera gel has been suggested as well, having been historically used to treat the condition. Others say that a warm bath with Epsom salt can soothe the irritation caused by piles. The list is quite long. However, if you’re looking for a faster, easier and clinically-proven way to treat haemorrhoids, you can resort to using Scheriproct Ointment.
